Please join us to celebrate the poetic sculptures of Lina Husseini, which will be on display at the Lebanese American University, Beirut Campus. Lina's sculptures have been exhibited in Lebanon, in Europe, and most recently in the USA, where she was accepted to be in the permanent collection of the Peoria Riverfront Museum in Peoria, Illinois. A highly recommended exhibition using an innovative medium that requires intense quick work in extreme temperatures.... an interesting conversation with the artist is an eyeopener as to how these sculptures are made. Dr. Tony Karam Curator

From expressions of identity and existentialism, to explorations of intimacy, the paintings, drawings and sculptures explore complex themes. Visually rich in color and composition, they translate and relay these topics in a palatable manner, conveying them in a single image or sculpture.Read More

Interview given to Mounir Hafi for World Art Collectors describing my feelings through the artworks exhibited in "Invisible Sentiments"Read More
Anxiety, joyfulness, and other feelings are each given their own pedestal in this series of installation. Thirteen pieces representing different situations and emotions that people experience on a daily basis are presented. They are to be considered and reflected upon as they reveal hidden sentiments. The mixed medium art pieces look like three dimensional paintings, with key elements highlighted in color and effectively 'popping' out of the flat background surface. The artworks err on the threshold of paintings and sculpture, but remain simple in their composition. Hands play a thematic role along with abstract shapes and elementary shades of red, blue, yellow, orange and green, all juxtaposed against dark neutral tones of black and grey.Read More

Magicienne des formes et artiste rebelle, Lina Husseini explore les émotions, les couleurs et leurs lignes, pour les faire fondre et leur redonner vie en de joyeuses sculptures. Lina a animé l’espace du Arthaus à Gemmayzé, en mettant en scène une exposition unique et exceptionnelle.Read More
Enter the colorful and playful world of Husseini’s soft and figurative sculptures. This is the latest frontier in this self-taught artist's experimentation with material and form. The sculptures are in plastic (PVC), fired at high heat and molded at their melting point. They display tell-tale signs of malleability and suppleness even when cooled and completely dry. The process allows leeway to haphazardness, veering away from the intended original design. The Pop Art figures are finished in varying coils and undulations, clad in primary shades of red, blue and yellow. Mixing figurative and abstract, some of the works have characteristics suggestive of human forms and expression. Minimalist in character, their effect is striking.Read More

Artists of Beirut Untold Stories (Women Artists & Artisans of Beirut) Bossa Nova Beirut Hotel June 15-20 Nina Abou Zeid, Irene Ghanem, Lina Husseini, Carole Ingea, Ramona Mansour, Mireille Merhej Zeina Nader, Aya Maria Nehme, Joanna Raad, Yara Saade, Joyce Samaha, Carla Sayad Hosted by 'Artists of Beirut', an initiative in support of contemporary Lebanese women artists and artisans, this exhibition brings together talent from various disciplines, each with their unique fingerprint. Aya Maria Nehme's ubiquitous dancers wink through layers of colors and bold splashes of paint, as if playing hide and seek between the viewer and the canvas. Carla Sayad, whose engravings of Beirut buildings and houses, etched in black ink and delicately accented with washes of watercolor, was already busy at work with live sketching, giving the audience a glimpse of the work in progress. Joyce Samaha's minimalist conceptual vases made of hardened white clay in soft shades of cream and pink look anything but, thanks to their inward- folding shapes, giving a false impression of malleability. In contrast, Lina Hussein's sculptural works are a mixture of shapes in all the colors, bringing to mind a bright, childlike playfulness, juxtaposed with the darker, existential aspects of the themes explored.Read More
L’art de Lina Husseini est plutôt orienté vers les tendances contemporaines mêlées à l’abstrait et au figuratif. Toutefois, rebelle dans ses œuvres, elle ne suit pas forcément des règles académiques. « J’écoute mon intuition et j’improvise. Je n’aime pas être limitée », avoue l’artiste.Read More
« Inventif et affranchi de tout concept et tout formalisme, l’art de Lina Maalouf Husseini procède de la rébellion. Véritable explosion de formes et de couleurs, il s’inscrit par sa spontanéité dans l’art singulier mais emprunte au pop art ses teintes et ses matériaux. Art rebelle qui détourne les objets de leur fonction, rompt les symétries et bouge les lignes pour proposer un ordre nouveau. Dans une société orientale où il veut donner à la femme toute son ampleur. En effet, décidée et volontaire, pareille à l’homme de Giacometti, dans les sculptures de l’artiste, c’est elle qui marche. Sculptures espiègles et ludiques, comme un clin d’œil, pour repousser les murs de l’angoisse et conjurer la douleur. » Nada BEJJANI RAAD architecte romancièreRead More

Lina Husseini's works are influenced by an idea related to contemporary art, which is a fragmented idea with a cultural entity. The artist relies on a mixture of different technologies and materials that are able to build the contemporary art scene through her works that are presented in the “Exode Gallery of Ashrafieh”. by Doha AbdelRaouf MullRead More
